We’ve heard a lot lately about Pantone Spring 2014 color trends. Radiant Orchid is the color getting the most attention.
Now, I love French Country style. My house is decorated in muted colors of blue, gray, greens, yellows. I just love the elegance of French decor and French Country allows a rustic, simple twist to the ornate, formal French style.
When Pantone announced the Spring 2014 colors I was a little stumbled. How to incorporate Radiant Orchid into a French Country decor?

I found great examples incorporating these new colors without compromising the French Country look. For example, Radiant Orchid is a color found in lavender — very French! Freesia is found in different depths of color in flowers. And Celosia Orange is a wonderful accent color
Lavender is a wonderful flower accent, ribbons, vase, framed art, pillow with lavender accents, and more.
I replaced the back with a pretty white bead board sheet. Just the country touch it needed!
Then I added accent pieces (my latest collection – china tea cups), silver serving pieces, even art work.
For a extra touch I covered wood letters in scrapbook paper and Mod Podge for coasters and to tell my family I LOVE them!
